Anyone who seriously prepares would never go on a show about it.

Reality TV wants preppers to be the next “Honey Boo Boo” sensation?

Count me in. What could go wrong?

Not sure about that. Every prepper I know want to talk about how to survive zombie land.

Are you trying to tell me that the people on “Doomsday Preppers” shouldn’t be showing the location of their secret stashes? Who knew?

Many people who believe in something like to publicize it, promote it, that has always been my personal way about survivalism, I talk about my stuff, show it to people, give some away to get them started, I like to hook people on the idea, to spread the idea, and a great way to do that is to show them aspects of your preparedness that would appeal to them, food for some, tech stuff for others, guns for still others, outdoor gear and skills for some, and so on.

If I wasn’t single I might not do all that, but every movement and good idea, even preparedness, needs some people who are not totally guarded and secret.

I am a survivalist cook. So far I have survived my own cooking, sort of.

Don't worry much about zombieland, but I damn sure worry about straight line winds and tornados that cause so much damage around these parts.

In fact, one might consider preparing for the normal natural disasters in your area a.... conservative kind of thing to do.

Honey Boo-Boo and her family are getting paid real money while many of us are not. Sure, it’s demeaning from our view, but perhaps they don’t care. Even “reality” shows aren’t real, of course, or there wouldn’t have been a reality shows writer’s strike some years back. Who needs a writer if it’s all real?

What's needed is a show where a clueless liberal is jerked out of bed in the middle of the night, and dumped in the wilderness to survive for a week on his/her own with no assistance.
That might wake them up.

I’d totally be willing to get paid to be doofus on a reality show. Whatever they want, good pay, short hours, play it right to score big early, and then right when the ratings start to lag to write your “tell all” book and retire with the fat bank.

Could we go over the top and just pretend to be nuts??

That might be fun.

One of the guys on Dual Survival is pretty granola. Of course he actually runs a school on primitive tech survival, so he’s got skills behind his long hair.

I'm a doofus in real life, so no rehearsals would be needed. Look at Chumley on Pawn Stars who is now a multi-millionaire. BTW, IIRC, he was already a part-owner of the store, but making him a menial worked better for the show's premise.

If you’re serious about this you wouldn’t advertise it to the world.

damn sure worry about straight line winds and tornadoes...

I just got through cleaning up from a storm back in early August that took out trees, fences, power lines, and my roof on the barn. I am a prepper and got lots of stuff but they'd be bored with someone with rifle skills and lots of farming to do.

Precisely.
First rule about the club is you don’t talk about the club.

I am unprepared for earthquakes, floods, alien invasions, zombie takeovers, and visits from the IRS. I have nothing. No food. No water. No weapons. No medical supplies. No alternate power sources. And my age is none of your darn business.

The show is to make fun of people as all reality shows are.
